Globally more than a billion people live in absolute poverty, which means living on less than one dollar per day. Nearly 3 billion people live on less than two dollars per day. At the same time the cost of staple foods is not lower in impoverished regions. The ecological crisis our planet is facing, including pollution, scarcity of resources, environmental degradation, and loss of biodiversity has to be seen in the context of the entire poverty cycle. Equal representation to all citizens, regardless of economic status; access to safe drinking water, proper sanitation, and proper health care (including family-planning resources); universal access to education. Only international cooperation and demilitarization can bring about these changes. Reference to the sentence "According to the UN environmental agency, a fraction of the annual global defence expenditure could ensure that all humans have access to clean water and a basic supply of food and healthcare."
